This is a great print and I like the way the colors would go green whenever the gem was in view.

Watched Popeye as a kid. It was nice to see it with an adult mindset.

That really IS Arabic for spinach. 5 stars to Kneitel and crew for being culturally correct!

Popeye plays Private Eye here, obviously. When A valuable gem gets stolen from Oyl, all paths lead to the butler of course (played by Bluto). And soon, its a round the world chase MFOR Bluto and Popeye. Soon, thanks to some spinach, Popeye gets his man!
This was just ok, nothing revolutionary, just ok.

and slightly dull. a time filler for a TV schedule, nothing special here folks.

Popeye simply does not make a very good private detective. He repeatedly (and bafflingly) blows his cover way too quickly. Eventually he ditches the covert methods and comes up with a solution that is typically Popeye.
A couple of interesting notes:
- Popeye is a very convincing cross-dresser
- Popeye appears to know how to read Arabic
- There is a potentially awkward moment when Popeye and the butler first meet
